Health and wellbeing day for women

10 November 2023

The Gunbalanya Safe House had been collaborating with the NT Health Team, to put together a ‘Health and Wellbeing Day’ event for the women of Gunbalanya on 1 November.
 The Gunbalanya Safe House team, along with West Arnhem Regional Council’s Manager of Community Service Support and Wellbeing Service Manager joined in together to prepare salads, fruit platters and cook up a fantastic barbecue with roast vegetables for the 34 participants. 
The event was focused towards the women’s social, emotional and wellbeing health. Topics covered on the day were how women can keep themselves strong not only for themselves, but also for their families and the community. 
Together the women were able to yarn about some of the worries and what may take their strength away. The women then were able to set goals on how to feel good about themselves. There were also feel-good activities for the children in how they too can stay happy within family and community. 
The Safe House would like to thank all who took the time to help organise and set up for the day. 
Thank you to Jo-Ann Adams for presenting this session, we look forward to your next trip to Gunbalanya. Thank you to Marnie and Vicki and all the safe house team who put on a great day.
